Once most famed for its bohemian lifestyle, the Byron Bay of today is re-establishing itself as a boutique resort town.

Modern deck. This new deck was added to a beautiful Queenslander and brings it into the 21st century. Large timber bi-fold doors open up the house to the large deck for entertaining. F.C. clad walls provide privacy from the neighbours and a thin slot opening makes a nice feature. Timber balustrade & stainless steel cables are used throughout. www.empiredesigns.com.au
